Our lawyers have extensive experience representing employers in employment class action litigation, including:
- Class actions challenging hiring, promotion, compensation and other employer policies and practices on the basis of race, sex, age, national origin and other legally-protected characteristics.
- Government initiated class actions by the OFCCP against federal contractors and subcontractors and by the state and federal labor departments.
- State and federal wage and hour collective and class actions challenging exempt job classifications, meal and rest breaks, travel, on-call and waiting time and other pay practices.
- ERISA and related employee benefits class actions.
Over the past several years, our lawyers have handled numerous class actions and multi-plaintiff claims.
We have a proven track record of success in class action cases. Capitalizing on our experience and knowledge of these claims, we have achieved success for our clients in a variety of ways from the use of statistical evidence to demonstrate that the employer's policies and practices are non-discriminatory, to defeating class certification attempts, to winning at summary judgment and at trial.
